Description

    Jack Davis Cracked #12 Cover Painting Original Art (Major Publications, 1960). Sylvester P. Smythe is putting together the pieces on this great cover by the incomparable Jack Davis! It's mind-boggling to realize that Davis just retired in 2014 -- 54 years after this painting was created! And he retired not because he couldn't draw anymore; he retired because he didn't feel his work was up to his own standards anymore! This work is acrylic paint on illustration board with an image area of approximately 12.5" x 17". Tanning with some minor glue residue from the border tape and the paste-up puzzle pieces in the bottom right corner, otherwise in Excellent condition. From The Cracked Vault Collection.
